Students in grades 7 & 8 who wish to participate in interscholastic athletics are encouraged to do so. Sixth graders can only act as managers if selected by the coach. Programs include cheerleading, football, volleyball, cross country, golf, wrestling, basketball, softball, track, baseball, tennis, and soccer. These teams compete in the Roanoke Valley Middle School League. Students must pass three out of four classes for 8th graders, and four of the five for 7th graders each semester in order to compete in a sport the following semester. A Virginia High School physical is required before students may participate in any interscholastic event. Physical forms can be picked up at BFMS or TGC or printed online http://www.vhsl.org/. In addition to the physical form, every athlete must sign a participation form as well as a concussion policy form.  


Winter sports at BFMS will begin soon. Anyone who would like to participate will need to have a VHSL physical on file BEFORE tryouts begin and will have to have attended a mandatory sports parent meeting. If you did not attend one of the meeting in July - there will be a one time make up meeting on October 8 at 6:30 in the East Hall auditorium. Both the parent and athlete must attend. If you have any questions - please call Jessica Slough at 540-493-6542.

Basketball tryouts for 2019 will begin October 15. Girls will be right after school and the boys times will be announced at a later date. 

Wrestling for 2019 will begin October 28 right after school in the east gym. 

Activity buses will be available. 







Activity buses are available for students who participate in after-school activities. Buses pick up at the West Hall at 6:00 p.m. and transport students to Franklin County High School, where they will board buses that transport them to the bus stop nearest their homes. Students who ride the activity buses are required to obtain an activity bus pass from the person who is responsible for the activity.  

You can call the bus garage at 483-5541 to find out which bus to ride and where the bus will stop, or click the link below.  PLEASE NOTE:  THE ACTIVITY BUS DOES NOT NECESSARILY STOP AT THE SAME PLACE AS THE REGULAR BUS.   **ACTIVITY BUS ROUTES
Students must have an activity bus pass, secured from the sponsor or coach in order to ride the activity bus. NO EXCEPTIONS!

The same acceptable bus conduct that is expected on any bus ride is also expected on activity buses. Activity bus transportation is a privilege that can be withdrawn for inappropriate behavior.
